Neck Injuries and Pain Relief Solutions


After a few months of working from home I started developing a neck ache and tight shoulders. Thankfully I found out about core concepts and their sports massage service which really helped to ease the tightness and pain and can also be quite therapeutic. I even started to sleep better after the sessions so definitely give this a go if you’re suffering from pain.

Found out about Core Concepts last year through social media and made an appointment as i was experiencing some neck and shoulder discomfort after a traffic accident. My therapist was evidently experienced and was able to pinpoint the cause of my aches. The one thing i loved about my experience at Core Concepts is that they are not like typical physiotherapists who simply prescribe take home exercises, instead my therapist was extremely hands on, helping me to massage my neck at the right spots to relief the stiffness - best massage ever! Would highly recommend Core Concepts!!

I've been to a few Core Concepts outlets and am pleased with my experiences so far! I went there thinking that I have a normal neck ache but they were quick to point out that it's due to my scoliosis. Each session usually leaves me feeling a lot relieved from the pain and I really appreciate the exercises which the team has taught me to strengthen the weaker back muscles. Thank you so much team!

I had an excellent sports massage by Wan Ling, which was very different from the usual massage I've tried elsewhere. Wan Ling skillfully and systematically loosened every muscle in my upper back and neck over the course of an hour. If anyone is seeking relief from tense muscles, I would highly recommend making an appointment with Wan Ling.

Neck Pain Causes and Conditions

Neck pain is more complicated than we think. Very often, what’s causing your pain is far deeper than what we expect. The spine is an intricate system that holds 33 bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. There is a multitude of reasons that may have caused neck pain.

A thorough assessment can determine the cause of your neck pain. The most common causes of neck pain are sleeping positions, sports or working at a desk for too long. To get a clearer understanding of your neck pain, do consult a physiotherapist.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Neck Pain

  1. What is causing my neck pain and how did I get it?

    There is a multitude of reasons that may have caused your neck pain. We can't determine the cause of your neck pain without a thorough assessment. The most common causes of neck pain are sleeping positions or working at a desk for too long. To get a clearer understanding of your neck pain, do consult a physiotherapist.

  2. Does my posture cause neck pain?

    Poor posture could result in neck strains such as when your head is held forward to view mobile devices. This is because your muscles are working overtime to keep your head in the forward position. As a result, your neck muscles would be more susceptible to painful strains and spasms.

  3. What treatments are available for neck pain?

    Some of the physio treatments methods for neck pain that we employ are manual therapy and strengthening exercises. Your treatment plan will be determined by your therapist after conducting a full assessment of your condition. For more severe cases, surgery may be required. We can refer you to a specialist if required.

  4. What can I do to prevent neck pain?

    One of the common causes of neck pain is bad sleeping posture. A quick and efficient solution is to get a new pillow that keeps your cervical spine in neutral alignment. It would also be advised to adopt a good posture when using mobile devices or working at a desk.

  5. When should I see a physiotherapist for neck pain?

    Seeking a physiotherapist as early as possible would allow an efficient recovery period. However, you should seek a physiotherapist immediately if you have been experiencing neck pain that is severe. Also, if your movements are limited or if the pain gets worse while performing certain activities. At Core Concepts, we are dedicated to addressing your issues and getting you back to full activity.
